Material Behavior in Additive Processes

Description of the topic
This topic area investigates material behavior along the entire process chain of polymer-based additive manufacturing. The focus is on the material-specific characteristics for the integration of reinforcements. Investigation of the interaction of material, process and equipment technology.

Goals of the topic
• Integration of continuous fibers in additive processes 
• Building understanding of process-dependent failure mechanisms
• Development of process-oriented materials
